Please note this NOT a dekatron! This is a GS11A or GS10A which are similar to a dekatron. a dekatron only has a single common cathode at the zero point. a GS11A has 11 cathodes, and a GS10A has 10. these are pretty rare to find these days...

It's more clear to name GS10A a "selectron"?

Any dekatron has  many(about 10) cathodes, in counting dekatrons only one is available for user. And on selecting tubes - all of them.  But inside they are identical.
